Hub City Weekly Update - 4/14/16

Hey everybody,

I'm sure you know that doctors recommend a yearly physical as a check up to gauge you health. We as a church have just embarked on an 8 month church-health checkup. You will be hearing more and more about this in the coming weeks, but let me give you a quick overview of what's taking place. 

We are in the process of assessing where we are as a church and our level of health. The main data for this assessment comes from you in the form of a church health survey. We need everyone at Hub City to fill out a survey. If you're in a Hub Group, then you will fill yours out there. If you're not in a group, then plan on coming early (9 AM) Sunday or staying late after worship to fill one out. Your input is essential to us getting clear picture of where we are.

After we finish the surveys, our Church Health Task Force and Church Health Prayer Team will be working to put together a plan for us to grow into a more healthy church. 

Now, why do we need to be a healthy church? I don't think we'll be all that God wants us to be and do all that God wants us to do if we aren't as healthy as we can be. 

I am extremely excited about the future and all that is going to come out of this church health process. Pray for us. Fill out your survey. And be ready to do whatever God tells you to do.

We are starting a very important series this coming Sunday called, How to be a good Church Member. We're going to spend the next six weeks learning what Biblical Church Membership is all about, why it matters, and how you are a part whether you realize it or not. My hope is that the next six weeks change how you think about church and what it means to be a part of Hub City Church. Membership matters. You matter. God has brought us together to do something unique.

I've attached graphics for Movies in the Park for you to post, share, email, print out, and use however you choose to spread the word about this summer's Movies in the Park. Here's a list of the movies we're showing:
  • May 21: Minions
  • June 18: Alexander and the terrible, no good, very bad day
  • July 16: Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  • August 20: Zootopia
God is up to some exciting things in and through us right now. Join me in praying to know where God is working so that we can join him there. 

Finally, a big THANK YOU to Randy Nichols for speaking this past week. I love that we have a God who is for the outcast, and we need to follow his example an be a church for the outcasts as well. May God use us to connect many outcasts with Jesus.

See you Sunday.

Your friend and pastor,
